On October 31st 2018, we had lunch at Gabriel Kreuther's restaurant in New York City, which was an excellent way to kick off the festivities of Halloween.
The restaurant is located at 42nd Street across from the New York Public Library and Bryant Park. The restaurant itself is beautiful, airy with salvaged-wood beams and design, comfortable furniture.
For our lunch, we opted for the three course menu at 89 USD per person. The amuse bouche was a brioche with delicious cashew nut hummus and watercress salsa verde, then arrived our entrée, we all had citrus cured local fluke with yuzu yogurt – the wasabi cucumber vinaigrette was light, tasty and savory. Our mains were baked Atlantic turbot; green watch hatchery trout on Cedar Plank, heritage pork tenderloin and charcoal grilled black Angus tenderloin. Each dish was as appealing to the eyes as it was to the palate. After tasting everyone of them, it was clear to us why Gabriel Kreuther is a master cook and saucer. His cooking is highly technical, well balanced and extremely flavorsome.
The desserts -- by Marc Aumont -- sounded traditional and heavy on paper like the Decadent Chocolate & Caramel or Harvest Pear & Caramel, but it was delicate, delicious and surprisingly light. It was the work of a master pastry chef.
The wine list was incredible and probably one of the best we ever came across in NYC with even a great selection of ciders, which we chose from by selecting Eric Bordelet’s Sydre Argelette served by the top sommelier Philippe Sauriat himself, probably one of the best and most knowledgeable sommeliers working in NYC at the moment.
The service was very nice, attentive and professional as it should be.
We had the chance to discover Gabriel Kreuther’s cooking ten years ago, in 2008, when he was at the helm of The Modern in MoMA. Now, he is a better chef who took his cooking up a notch or two which has just got him his second Michelin star. We are very happy for him as, in our opinion, it is well deserved. Congratulations to Gabriel Kreuther and his wonderful team!
